Control your thoughts

Your thoughts affect your mood, your behaviour, and your feelings about yourself. Here are 5 tips to take control of your thoughts:

  • Stop. Be mindful of your thoughts.
  • Remind yourself: "I am more than my thoughts".
  • Picture an internal shield. Use your shield to insulate yourself from your thought. This will give you the time and space to think about your thought differently.
  • Decide: is this a 'Build Me' or a 'Break Me' thought? To help you identify which category your thought falls into, tune in to how it makes you feel.
  • If it's a 'Build Me' thought, well done on becoming aware of how your thinking can become a positive resource - next week we'll address the nuts and bolts of how to use 'Build Me' thoughts to build a Brick Wall. Otherwise, contact one of the coaches at SEN.

If it's a 'Break Me' thought (for example: 'No matter how hard I try, it's never good enough'), consider a credible, alternative thought that is positive (for example: 'My contributions are valuable'). In this way you can use 'Break Me' thoughts as an opportunity to re-programme your thinking in a way that allows you to feel good about yourself, make effective choices for yourself, and enhances your mood.
